We encourage young artists who are strongly committed to their artistic practice, MFA candidates, and recent MFA graduates (1-3 years) to submit!

Although MFA students and graduates will be prioritized, BA or BFA seniors and graduates (1-3 years) will be considered if they choose to submit. We welcome any perspective!

Submissions for EMERGE are free!

We use Google Forms for our submission platform. You can click here to submit.

If you don’t have a Google account, you can always make one – it’s free! 

There is no theme to the EMERGE exhibition. We treat each year like a survey, encouraging a range of perspectives, concepts, and applications of the fine arts. We welcome young artists practicing in different media such as painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, craft, etc to apply.

Page Bond Gallery is located in the West End District of Richmond, Virginia on the 1st floor of 3North architecture, 4015 Fitzhugh Avenue, Richmond, Virginia 23220. We also have an off-site storage facility and office at 1520 W Main St, where we allow artists to ship work directly. 

If you are unable to transport your work directly to the gallery, you may ship it to our offsite storage office at 1520 W Main St, Ste 204, Richmond, VA 23220. 

Because we do not charge for the submission process, we ask that you cover the cost of shipment or transport to and from the gallery. In the event that your work is sold, we will reimburse the cost of the return shipping. We ask that all participating artists include a prepaid return shipping label in the package with their shipped piece(s).

All participating artist’s must have their signed and presentation-ready work delivered to Page Bond Gallery by Monday May 13th, 2024

All work should be shipped to:
Page Bond Gallery
1520 W Main St, STE 204,
Richmond, Virginia 23220

We expect all participating artists to ship their work in the condition it will be shown and potentially sold. If the work needs to be mounted, framed, or hung, all framing should be complete upon arrival. Hardware is recommended, but If you do not have hardware for your framing methods, we can attach hardware during the installation process. All work should be signed, or include a signed certificate of authenticity, in the event your work is sold to a collector.

Looking for assistance preparing your work? Accepted artists will receive support materials, and are more than welcome to reach out with any questions.

All work is split 50/50 between the gallery and the artist, directly funding young artists’ practice while supporting the gallery’s operations.

The gallery is always free to visit, by appointment, during our normal hours (M-F, 10-5pm). If you are interested in a guided tour for students or large groups, please email us at admin@pagebondgallery.com.
